I guess I wasn't paying attention then. But after you posted the trailer and then I saw the poster and then I went on twitter and it was everywhere and so on.... will it be in mainstream cinemas I wonder? The nearest one to me is a multiscreen type thing in one of the huge shopping malls they have here; a horrible box completely lacking in character inside a larger, similarly character-free box, which is fine of course for a random blockbuster that you stumble into to escape from shopping, but the choice is very limited... and also maybe some films are actually best enjoyed in appropriate places, of course it shouldn't matter once the film is on but if I'm honest I do miss the slightly more individual looking cinemas I tended to visit in London or Oxford etc

Does look kinda interesting, cronenburg but with a lofi English feeling. Ben Wheatley vibes. Never heard of this filmmaker, or any of the actors.

That doesn't surprise me, cos this is a film made by a friend of a friend who is travelling to Lisbon in a couple of weeks. He was trying to get a gig here and someone gave him my name, I passed him on to a bar where and now he is gonna play on a Thurs when we are there.

As a result of this we were chatting online and he mentioned that he is also a filmmaker, this 40 min short is his latest and it's being shown at some US festivals right now. He's trying to organise a showing while in Lisbon and hopefully I will get a chance to see it one way or another. We chatted about films for like three hours last night, he seems quite an interesting guy.

He says his favourite film is this - which I've not heard of - apparently it's a big influence on his own work.
